LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Members of First Baptist Church of Lufkin spent four weekends constructing a home for a family in need.    

Wednesday the floor, sub-floor and wall of the home sat in piles in the church's parking lot.

Ready to be shipped to the Rio Grande Valley the 940- square foot home is being made for a family of five that is currently living a travel trailer.

Organizers say they constructed part of the home here to give their members the opportunity to lend a helping hand.

"We're trying to fulfill our mission as Christians and that we're supposed to be servants and that we're supposed to be servant and that's what we're serving this family in a way that they really need," said David Sanders, First Baptist Church of Lufkin.

Volunteers are loading up Wednesday night will leave at noon Thursday.

30 church members will volunteer throughout the week, they will begin construction Friday morning.
